    Sunday a couple friends and I went up to Virginia City to the Bucket of Blood Saloon to listen to David John and the Comstock Cowboy's. (I missed ya arch...) During one of the bands breaks we went outside to take a pic. I always like to take two pictures just so I can pick the best of the two. Well... there's something of a big cloud in front of us in the second picture, and it's a mystery to me what it is. My camera is a Canon S50 Power Shot, digital, and it's never done this before. I was looking right at my friend taking the picture, and he did a good job.

    There are lots of stories about haunted Virginia City. So... is this a ghost?

    Looks like a flash reflection to me.

    Would you kindly attach the image, or host with another site, such as imagehostingsite.com - I can't see the pic, and am VERY curious.

    :)

    I can't BELIEVE you can't SEE it. I use http://www.walagata.com/ Do you have firewall preventing you from viewing?

    Yes. Work Network Nazis have that site blocked for some reason.

    Lens flare from the flash or the overhead lighting.
